Today’s backing track / cover version was “Sam Hunt – Drinkin’ Too Much”. Sam is a country artist but you’d barely know if from this song as the arrangement is more similar to a Drake track. This is helped along by the sung chorus/spoken rapped verses, and the instrumentation which is more reminiscent of hip hop.  The biggest clue to it’s country origins are the southern US accent and the pedal steel guitar which makes an appearance here and there throughout the song.  Not my personal cup of tea as a song, but it made a change from the usual country music I hear.
